    Can a Skinny Person Get a Brazilian Butt Lift?

    If you’re looking to add more shape and definition to your derriere, but have been told you’re too thin for a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) and that butt implants are your only option, a skinny Brazilian butt lift may be exactly what you’re looking for. Improved harvesting techniques now make having a more aesthetic rear end an exciting option for those with a slender physique.

    When you’re looking for a procedure that can help you feel better about the way your fanny looks, there’s no better choice than Dr. David Shokrian of Millennial Plastic Surgery. He provides an array of services to help you get the body contour you crave, using injectables and fillers or more extensive procedures like face lifts, mommy makeovers, and full tummy tucks.

    What Exactly Is a Skinny BBL?

    A skinny Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure to modify the shape of the buttocks of a person with a slim or athletic build. People with this body type frequently struggle with a lack of noticeable curves.

    This procedure provides several benefits, including:

    People who are petite and thin have a limited amount of body fat, so they aren’t usually good candidates for a traditional BBL because they don’t have enough body fat to relocate via liposuction. Yet, their most common complaint involves having a flat butt, dipped hips and no natural curve between their waist and backside.

    Why Would I Want a Skinny BBL?

    Getting the hourglass figure you want can be difficult with just diet and exercise, and that’s one reason that butt enhancement procedures continue to grow in popularity.

    Reasons you may want to consider a skinny BBL include:

    People are often happy with the natural look they attain after a skinny BBL procedure. And when the procedure is done by a highly skilled surgeon like Dr. Shokrian, scars are almost invisible. The appearance of your butt is rounded and shapely, but not excessively large. You have curves in the right places. Best of all, your curves come from your own body, not from implants.

    How Is a Skinny BBL Different from a Brazilian Butt Lift?

    When you have a Brazilian butt lift, your surgeon performs liposuction to remove fat from areas of your body where it’s not wanted, such as from your love handles. Then your doctor relocates that fat to your butt area to improve your appearance and shape.

    A skinny BBL is a similar procedure, but there are several differences, including:

    Even with a lower amount of unwanted fat, a skinny person may still want some fat removed from areas like the abdomen or back. Small, barely noticeable incisions are used to remove fat from multiple areas. After a skinny BBL, your buttocks won’t be much larger, but your booty attains a more attractive shape and appearance. You’ll notice the difference, and so will others.

    Is There Any Difference Between Mini BBL and Skinny BBL?

    The procedure known as Mini BBL (also called Petite BBL or Small BBL) and Skinny BBL share a common focus, differing from the traditional Brazilian Butt Lift by concentrating less on extensive fat removal. Instead, they aim to harvest just enough fat to refine specific areas of the buttocks, address hip dips, or achieve a subtle, natural-looking projection.

    Who’s a Good Candidate for a Skinny BBL?

    A skinny BBL is an option for those who don’t have enough body fat for a traditional Brazilian butt lift. But even if you’re slim, you probably still have enough fat on your body to allow some to be harvested in a liposuction procedure. Body mass index (BMI) is a screening method for determining overall body composition, which gives your plastic surgeon an idea if you’re overweight or underweight and if you’re a suitable candidate for a skinny BBL.

    As a rule of thumb, your BMI should be under 25 for a skinny BBL, compared to a traditional BBL which is geared to people with BMI between 25 and 30.

    Other criteria that an ideal candidate meets include being:

    Once you meet this criteria, the next step is to find a New York City plastic surgeon who’s highly skilled in harvesting fat from people with a low BMI. While a skinny BBL is more commonly done for women than men, men are sometimes also interested in the benefits of plastic surgery for men, such as male liposuction or a skinny BBL.

    You must set up a consultation with your Manhattan plastic surgeon to find out if you’re a candidate for a skinny BBL. At your consultation with Dr. Shokrian, you discuss your goals and expectations. He determines if your expectations are realistic and whether you’re a good candidate for this procedure or whether a different procedure is a better fit. He then answers any questions you may have. He may advise you to gain some weight before you undergo this procedure.

    Are There Reasons I May Not Qualify for a Skinny BBL?

    A skinny BBL is often the perfect solution for slender people who want their behind to have a more curvaceous appearance, but the procedure may not be an option for everyone.

    There are a few reasons that you can’t be considered a good candidate for a skinny BBL, including:

    If your BMI is higher than 25, your doctor is likely to recommend a traditional BBL rather than a skinny BBL. If your BMI is under 20, you may not qualify for a skinny BBL.

    If you don’t qualify for a skinny BBL, don’t give up on having a better butt. You may be able to attain a curvier bottom with butt implants. A butt implant procedure doesn’t require candidates to gain weight before being considered for the procedure. A variety of sizes and shapes are available, so you have an opportunity to attain the specific look you want.

    What Should I Expect during a Skinny BBL Procedure?

    A skinny BBL is an outpatient procedure that usually takes between two and three hours to complete. The total time needed varies from one person to another.

    The general process to expect on the day of your procedure includes:

    After the procedure at Millennial Plastic Surgery, you rest in the recovery room. There are some risks to any type of surgery, such as an infection or having an adverse reaction to anesthesia, but complications of a skinny BBL are rare, especially when you entrust your care to an expert like Dr. Shokrian. Before you go home, you’re given detailed instructions regarding post-operative care.

    Liposuction must be more precise in a skinny BBL compared to a traditional BBL. Since you don’t have much body fat to begin with, it’s crucial that the amount of fat removed isn’t excessive, but it’s enough to deliver natural results. Your NYC plastic surgeon makes sure your buttocks are still proportional to the rest of your shape. That’s why you must trust your procedure to a specially trained and highly experienced board certified plastic surgeon.

    What’s the Recovery from a Skinny BBL Like?

    Plan to give yourself nurturing and attention as you recover from a skinny BBL or any other surgical procedure. The first week after surgery is the hardest, and you may experience some swelling, pain and bruising. There may be some leakage from locations where a cannula was inserted for fat removal, but it usually only lasts 12 to 24 hours.

    Other things to expect during recovery include:

    Follow your doctor’s post-op instructions closely. It’s a good idea to have someone with you for the first 24 to 48 hours of your recovery. The amount of pain and discomfort experienced varies from one person to another, with some people reporting minimal pain and others saying they were very uncomfortable for the first few days after surgery. If your procedure included multiple areas of liposuction, you may experience soreness in multiple areas.

    You may find that at first your butt looks larger than you were expecting. This is temporary because your body absorbs about half of the fat that was injected and the area gradually slims down. Your NYC plastic surgeon lets you know how soon you can resume normal activities, which is typically after a month or so. Complete healing may take up to a year, but results should be visible after about six months.

    How Long Does a Skinny BBL Last?

    The results you obtain from a skinny BBL are like those from a traditional BBL and can last five years or much longer.

    Factors that can affect the results of a skinny BBL include:

    In the years that follow a cosmetic procedure, your own lifestyle choices affect your long-term results.

    Do your very best to make good choices each day that include:

    Pregnancy and dramatic weight gain or weight loss can affect the appearance of your body and the long-term results you get from a skinny BBL. The better care you take of yourself, the more likely it is that the improvements you experience after a skinny BBL, or any other cosmetic procedure, last a long time.

    How Much Does a Skinny BBL Cost?

    According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, an average cost of augmentation in the buttocks that relies on fat grafting is likely to exceed $9,000, and that doesn’t include the anesthesia fees, any facilities charges and other expenses related to the procedure.

    The total cost of any cosmetic procedure is based on your individual goals along with a combination of factors, such as:

    Price alone shouldn’t be the deciding factor in choosing a doctor since the surgeon’s reputation and level of experience are much more important than the cost. A skinny BBL is considered an elective procedure, which means it’s unlikely that it’s covered by your health insurance. If paying for the procedure out-of-pocket is a concern, reach out to Millennial Plastic Surgery to find out about financing options.
